Tell Your Representative to Support SB 309!

 Senate Bill 309 will work to establish an equitable system for self-generation of energy for both customers who own self-generation units, like wind and solar, and for customers who don't. By putting in law a favorable rate of return for self-generating customers who sell their excess energy back to their energy company, while making sure customers who don't self-generate won't have higher costs to maintain the grid shifted to them, SB 309 establishes that equitable system.

Continued Growth for Self-Generation

  As the cost of private energy generation starts to come down, some states are cutting compensation to self-generating customers who sell their excess power back to their energy company.
  Indiana is still a place where self-generation is being supported by energy companies and Senate Bill 309 will preserve the higher retail rate paid to self-generating customers for many years to come. Additionally, Senate Bill 309 puts into place a transition that won't financially burden customers that don't self-generate in the future. 

  Senate Bill 309 establishes certainty for all customers as more and more of them decide to generate their own energy.


Self-Generation of Energy Will Continue to Thrive in Indiana

  Self-generation of energy has come a long way in the last ten years since net metering laws were put into place to help incentivize customers to invest in private generation like solar and wind.
  In an effort to continue to promote renewal energy, Indiana’s electric utilities propose to extend the net metering laws in Senate Bill 309. Customers will have the certainty of knowing that the excess energy they generate will be purchased by their energy supplier.  
  Senate Bill 309 is a sensible way to expand solar generation for existing customers and establish certainty for customers who want to install private solar generation units in the future.
